User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98) Build Identifier: First of all, you may not consider these as bugs. My apology for being so short on describing, cause I'm sure you know what I mean :-) I see that there's a Windows Media Player plug-in. But when I opened www.launch.com and attempted to play a video, the website refused and asked me to download the latest WMP. Is the "problem" in the latest build also?? I also want to suggest Mozilla adds a "browser-type manipulation" like Opera does. I've heard that several sites "stupidly" refuse to load on non-IE (though they mayn't be using ActiveX). Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: <just see the above desciptions>
Confirm with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030110. There is pop-up window with message: "To use this application with Netscape, you must use a 4.7x version. Download now."
Reporter, do the following: - Give build ID - Try to reproduce the bug - Don't use one bug report to suggest several things I consider this bug report as invalid for obvious reasons.

Arman (reporter) said: "But when I opened www.launch.com and attempted to play a video, the website refused and asked me to download the latest WMP." Ruslan then replied on comment 1 (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi? id=188691#c1). Thanks Ruslan. I'm sorry. The request to download the latest WMP is when I use Opera. I was testing both browsers and got mixed-up. Sorry. I'm just adding a little that the complete message is: "To use this application with Netscape, you must use a 4.7x version. <a href="http://wp.netscape.com/download/archive/client_archive47x.html">Download now</a>." This happens after you click on a video to stream. -------------------- To address Benedikt: It's Mozilla 1.1b >> Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020721. But from Ruslan comment, I think it happens also on his browser. I just tried to reproduce it and the same happened. Sorry for the last thing. As I stated earlier, this may or may not be a bug. In addition, when I suggested adding browser manipulation feature to Mozilla, of course this cannot be called a bug. I don't know where to post suggestion, so I posted here. ------------------- To address Olivier, Thank you. It appears that launch.com blocks Mozilla. I tried rollingstone.com and can play its Windows Media video. And that supports my suggestion to add "browser camouflage" like Opera does... -------- Finally, I want to ask 1 more question: When I click Help | About Plug-ins, there're: <b><center>Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Link Library</center></b> File name: npdsplay.dll and <b><center>Microsoft® Windows Media Services</center></b> File name: npwmsdrm.dll What's the differences between those 2???
OS: Windows XP → All
Hardware: PC → All
Thanks so much for the info. However, you should've addressed this to bug #121832, since I asked the question there. BTW, you instead forgot to answer my real question in this report (see the last lines of comment #4).
I guess the first DLL handles the display, the other one the DRM (digital rights management) stuff.
